An urban periphery, a small semi-abandoned mansion and its sole inhabitant. A forty-years-old Chinese young man look at the world with cynicism and resentment. Time ago, the building has hosted an experiment of self-management and alternatively shared life. Back then the young man, son of the real Communism, looked at the future and felt to be part of a different history. Today, some friends are still knocking at the door, but just fragments remain of a life lived together, while we can ear the intense noise of the construction sites. A voice over reveals traits of a deep relationship, distant by now. Around the huge Chinese metropolis, constantly in construction and destruction, where the memory's space is increasingly difficult to find.

Here the trailer.
